# All this catalog "translates" are quotation characters.
2
# The msgids must be ASCII and therefore cannot contain real quotation
3
# characters, only substitutes like grave accent (0x60), apostrophe (0x27)
4
# and double quote (0x22). These substitutes look strange; see
5
# http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/ucs/quotes.html

# This catalog translates grave accent (0x60) and apostrophe (0x27) to
8
# left single quotation mark (U+2018) and right single quotation mark (U+2019).
9
# It also translates pairs of apostrophe (0x27) to
10
# left single quotation mark (U+2018) and right single quotation mark (U+2019)
11
# and pairs of quotation mark (0x22) to
12
# left double quotation mark (U+201C) and right double quotation mark (U+201D).

14
# When output to an UTF-8 terminal, the quotation characters appear perfectly.
15
# When output to an ISO-8859-1 terminal, the single quotation marks are
16
# transliterated to apostrophes (by iconv in glibc 2.2 or newer) or to
17
# grave/acute accent (by libiconv), and the double quotation marks are
18
# transliterated to 0x22.
19
# When output to an ASCII terminal, the single quotation marks are
20
# transliterated to apostrophes, and the double quotation marks are
21
# transliterated to 0x22.

#
23
# This catalog furthermore displays the text between the quotation marks in
24
# bold face, assuming the VT100/XTerm escape sequences.
